NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — Thursday night’s live telecast of “The Sound of Music” appears to be a hit for NBC.

The Nielsen ratings company says nearly 18.5 million viewers tuned to Thursday night’s live telecast of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

Despite high ratings,the three-hour live production starring Carrie Underwood brought in mixed reviews from critics.

It was the first full-scale musical staged live for television in more than a half-century.

    It was a 100% Hit! Great Live Theater. It's not supposed to be a movie where multiple do-overs are allowed, expected and required. What Carrie and the cast accomplished took GUTS!

    Tell all these critics to get our of their comfort zone and perform live on stage and lets see how they compare to Carrie Underwood………….she did an excellent job. She is a Country Music Star……..but she still did a great job on "The Sound of Music".
